Photographer Records Daily Life for Troops in Afghanistan

SGT Julieanne Morse recently completed a tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2013 as an Army photographer. She spent a lot of time traveling - much of it in Logar province when assigned to 6th Squadron, 8th Cavalry Regiment. 5/8 Cav was responsible (in conjunction with the ANSF) with providing security in Logar and for the conduct of the Security Force Assistance mission. Logar was a very active province with several contested districts (Azra, Baraki Barak, Charkh, and Kharwar). Morse is a Black Hills State University photography student and also a member of South Dakota's National Guard 129th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment. During her tour she embedded with a number of different units and took photographs of U.S. military units as well as the Afghan National Security Forces.
